Staff report

People walking around the Los Rios area may have noticed portions of Los Rios Park are fenced off.

That’s because the City of San Juan Capistrano is getting started on renovation efforts at the popular recreation spot. The Public Works Department is in the process of undertaking several park maintenance projects, with Los Rios Park the current focus, Senior Management Analyst Matisse Reischl said.

“Two weeks ago, Public Works repaired the drinking fountain and has now begun refurbishment of the picnic tables and benches,” Reischl said.

Public Works will be repairing and painting various trellis structures at the park in March. Come April, the city hopes to schedule repair and new paint work for the restroom building.

“Ongoing efforts include tree trimming, landscape maintenance and irrigation repairs,” Reischl said.
